This edition features saints from many nations and backgrounds and includes new articles on recently canonized saints. The index offers the list of saints from the complete edition, and includes all new canonizations and new dates, making it eh most up-to-date listing of saints available. "Butlter's Lives of the Saints" remains a remarkable reference source and, through its comprehensive biographies, a valuable aid to devotion and a rich source of historical information.
